    Extended black screen waiting to load windows w-g15 // FIXED

    This is for people with a logitech g15 keyboard and windows vista. People with this keyboard will have a long delayed black screen just before entering windows. I have a found a fix for this it is very simple to fix, and you will now notice no delay in the transition between windows loading and windows desktop screen.

    First open Device Manager, then goto View and change it to Devices by Connection. Then follow the tabs from x32/x64 PC to PCI Buss then in One of your USB Host Controllers will a tab called Generic USB Hub then goto into USB Human Interface Device, there should be two items inside there HID Keyboard, HID complaint, you need to right click on the HID Keyboard Device and Update Driver software, click Browse your computer then Let me Pick then pick HID-complaint Device then you should have two HID-complaint Device in that tab and now its done, restart and notice the difference. hope this helps

    Excellent... that pause with no hard drive activity really annoys me when trying to do some testing and i'm constantly rebooting
    Occasionally it would just boot, but 9 times out of 10, there was a large pause before the startup sound and the desktop appearing.
    I've just tried your fix in Vista Ult. x64 and have rebooted 3 times so far with no pauses yet, thank you :)

    Thank you very much for that. I was so angry about it, and now the delay disappear. You are a genius, I spent a lot of time to solve this problem and also about 10 reinstalls of windows.

    You have to tell it to everyone, I know that there are tousands of ppl with this issue

    THANKS AGAIN.

    I asked LOGITECH SUPPORT CENTRE about it, they talk the bull**** like disconnect your keybord a connect again a other such a stupid ideas, that I have wrong USB chpset on my MB. I almost buy new MB, lol

    I would like to know where you find a fix for that too. I am sure it was not from Logitech

    I had to plug the mouse PS2 connection and the USB plug in to get SetPoint to work properly. I might of had to reinstall the drivers once I did that too. Only way the receiver works properly for me in both XP and Vista.

    ****ing awesome. THANK GOD. Annoyed the **** outta me.

    be careful though when making these changes. There are 2 USB human interface device drop downs and both have HID... dont update the wrong one or your keyboard wont work... i had to do a quick restore to get it working again.

    I would like to warn people NOT to do this fix. Or at least take a good note and check your G keys in all your important apps before "forgetting" about it.

    To be honest, I didn't notice any improvement anyway but aside from that, after doing this some of my G Keys refused to work properly.

    Very odd. For example I had G4 key set to send F3 and it would not send it in certain applications. (Apps that had worked before).

    I didn't really suspect this fix to be the cause (because it only affected some keys) until just now I reversed the process by setting the driver back to hid keyboard...

    Voila! All G Keys working again.

    I am on Vista 64 and all latest drivers and updates btw.

    PS. I did not do the "wrong" one :)

    My "G keys" are still working, but it didn't change anything (faster boot) for me either... :frown:

    I remember trying to get my keyboard to work properly the same way with installing HID drivers manually, but I found sometimes it didn't work. I have SetPoint 2.40 on XP x86 and they work fine with Game Detection and Hot Keys, though I think I have SetPoint 4.60 for Vista x86. The only way the keyboard and mouse work properly though is if both the green PS2 connector (mouse) and the USB connector for the receiver are plugged in. I said keyboard PS2 connector in earlier post, my bad, I just checked with the torch and that sucker is green not purple.

    This is assuming you also have a wireless logitech mouse with a PS2 connector on the receiver but it may help if you don't. Uninstall keyboard and mouse drivers and reboot into Vista, then shutdown Vista (this makes sure old driver files are removed). Then plug in PS2 connector for mouse receiver (if you have one, otherwise use USB) and plug the USB connector for keyboard in a different slot than before if possible. Sometimes moving USB slots seems to help and you can plug it back into the old slot once it works if you like. Make sure USB Keyboard & Mouse Support are enabled in BIOS and any Legacy Keboard & Mouse Support options are enabled too if you have them. Boot Vista and install drivers for keyboard and mouse.

    Fantastic - Thank you.
    Do you realise, how many threads have been written in various BBs about this bug?
    Nobody found the common hardware within all those complaints - untill now!
    The Keyboard/Mouse it was.

    I want to have your babies...!!
    Seriously, you cant imagine how many hours I've been searching for the cause of this delay. I would never have imagined it was this. Oh the frustration...
    Thank you
